by Telerik - Product Type: Application
Website development simplified. Sitefinity is a development platform for construction and management of Websites, community portals and intranets. Inspired by Web 2.0 UIs, the product delivers a top experience for end users, while the flexible architecture empowers developers to be in a full control. If you have existing site or system you can easily integrate it with Sitefinity CMS. And if you know .NET you already know how to work with Sitefinity CMS. The look-and-feel of pages is defined through templates and themes, which are based on standard ASP.NET Master Pages and APP_Themes.

Images & Documents Module
Sitefinity comes with over 9 modules including news, blogs, events, and a newsletter module.
Support for Public Users and Restricted Site Areas
Users can be placed into groups with permissions for certain site areas. As a result, you can create restricted pages, both in Sitefinity’s administration area and the public site, that are only accessible to a given group of public users. To make the development process easier, Sitefinity ships with customizable controls for registration, log-in, and password change.
Cross Browser Support
Sitefinity provides support for Gecko-based browsers (Mozilla, Netscape, and Firefox) not only for viewing the published site, but also for content management.
Support for Multilingual Sites
With Sitefinity, you can easily build and manage multilingual sites. The application provides intuitive interfaces for localization of the page names, meta data, as well as the complete HTML content of Editable Cells. Sitefinity’s administration area can also be localized.
Support for User Friendly URLs
Sitefinity uses page names instead of GUIDs. This significantly improves the user experience and comprehension about the site structure. To improve your website’s search rankings, Sitefinity also supports URL Rewriting for modules and pages.
Native ASP.NET Application
Sitefinity is a native ASP.NET application, which completely leverages the performance, scalability, and extensibility of the Microsoft .NET platform.
Open Modular Architecture
Sitefinity uses an open-architecture, consisting of self-contained independent modules. As a developer, you add functionality to existing modules or add new controls
Easy Integration and Reuse of Standard ASP.NET Controls
The building blocks of Sitefinity are standard ASP.NET controls. Simply upload the relevant files with the integrated control uploader tool or add them directly to the Visual Studio project. Then, select the control from a list and drag the control onto the page.
Side-by-Side Development in Visual Studio
Every Sitefinity website can be opened in Visual Studio. This allows you to do side-by-side development and test the results on-the-fly in the working project. Developers can write new user controls, modify the functionality of existing ones, or reuse readily-available code. At the end, all they have to do is build the project and refresh the browser window.
Ability to Parameterize User Controls from the Browser
In Sitefinity, developers can create public properties in Visual Studio whose values are editable in Sitefinity through a property grid. This tool looks similar to the Properties Window in Visual Studio and it eliminates the need for off-line configuration and upload of the control files.
Features the Award-Wining RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX and RadControls for Silverlight Components
These tools are included with Sitefinity and can be used to create custom modules, or customize existing pluggable ones, inside the current Sitefinity project.
Fully Exposed API for Complete Control and Extensibility
Sitefinity exposes a comprehensive set of methods and events, which allow developers to handle and customize almost every aspect of the application: programmatically create users and set permissions, build layouts and pages, detect and set cell content, etc. A developer guide with a full API reference and code examples is provided to get you started.
Search-Engine Friendly URLs
Sitefinity employs URL rewriting to emulate real .aspx pages. This allows search engines to fully index Sitefinity websites and properly pass the ranks to all sub-pages.
